Our loving son, brother and friend Christopher Kalai Fernandez passed away unexpectedly August 26, 2019. Kalai was born November 15th in Hawaii and immediately brought a smile to everyone’s face. He loved spending time with his Dad, Mom and ohana. At the age of 9 Kalai’s father, Ernest passed away and his Mother, Patricia moved the family to Utah. Kalai brought a smile and a laugh to all of his classmates as he went through his education, finishing school at Ogden High. Who could forget Kalai driving all of his friends around in his Jeep. Kalai loved spending time with his family, he was so proud of his son Jordan, and daughter Leilani. He was Uncle Koolaid to his nieces and nephews Alex Marie Fernandez (Alyvia and Preston) and Maikai Fernandez. He cherished his relationship with his nephew, Kai Sandman. He was a great father figure to his extended loved ones Karson and Kaytee Peek, along with many other’s that looked up to him. Kalai had a special relationship with Erin Donnelly. Kalai was happiest when he was spending time fishing, watching baseball and being a coach/mentor/father figure to so many kids, friends and family. Kalai was able to light up a room just by his laughter and his smile, he will be greatly missed. A special thank you to Kaytee Peek for helping Jordan through this time in his life. Kalai is preceded in death by his Father, Ernest B Fernandez Jr. Kalai is survived by his Mother, Patricia B Rettberg, brothers Alika (Nikki) Fernandez and Kealiipunahele Fernandez.
